Right Wing Deception Goes Big in Israel Gaza Conflict

Well, we see it at home with false Breitbart posts and a host of other places (anyone remember the false pieces on ACORN?). NOW, in an effort to drive a wedge between Jewish American voters, 70% of whom voted for President Obama in 2012 we have this nightmare:

Reporter Oren Nahari at Israel’s Channel One reported that he received a leaked conversation between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu:

The following is an English translation of the Hebrew account of the talk given in the report:

Barack Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities, in particular airstrikes.

Benjamin Netanyahu: And what will Israel receive in exchange for a ceasefire?

BO: I believe that Hamas will cease its rocket fire — silence will be met with silence.

BN: Hamas broke all five previous ceasefires. It’s a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

BO: I repeat and expect Israel to stop all its military activities unilaterally. The pictures of destruction in Gaza distance the world from Israel’s position.

BN: Kerry’s proposal was completely unrealistic and gives Hamas military and diplomatic advantages.

BO: Within a week of the end of Israel’s military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas based on the 2012 understandings, including Israel’s commitment to removing the siege restrictions on Gaza.

BN: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. It’s impossible to rely on them to be fair mediators.

BO: I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators.

BN: I protest because Hamas can continue to launch rockets and use tunnels for terror attacks -

BO: (interrupting Netanyahu) The ball’s in Israel’s court, and it must end all its military activities.

This was immediately picked up by the Times of Israel and then went viral throughout the Right blogosphere where Republicans are doing everything they can to try to sway Jewish voters away from the Democratic Party.

Now, anyone reading this conversation who is familiar with either of the actors (Pres. Obama and PM Netanyahu) can immediately tell this is false. Rather, the thing reads like some Rightist conspiracy dream. It doesn’t resemble the style of either man and/or their discussions with each other even when the two were extremely at odds.

Of course the White House AND the Government of Israel are denying the content of this snippet of a thirty five (35) minute discussion saying “Neither reports nor alleged transcript bear any resemblance to reality.” Both governments tweeted out their denials within minutes after the story broke at that the Times of Israel.

The question of course remains: “How low does one have to sink to completely create a false story, in the Middle of a War, to try to manipulate sections of the American voting public? And if they will do this, what else will they try before November 2014?”

I don’t think this is news to anyone nor is it a surprise that the Republicans and their Rightist allies are so desperate that they will concoct stories out of thin air to try to discredit the administration, but, I am really surprised that most of their followers simply accept these fabrications as truth without question. AND even those who do question things still trust these sources as places to be informed.

One other thing… IF this is an Israeli only report than it is very sad that a completely made up story makes it to a press that is generally more reliable than any other in the region (except for Arutz Sheva or Israel Hayom). BUT, if there is an American Official spreading this, than that is straight out sedition where an American creates a complete lie out of thin air regarding the President and then presents that lie to a foreign nations press in order to subvert an alliance.

What depths will the Right sink to in the coming months as the election draws near… who knows? One thing is for certain, I think that from here on in, if the Right reports that the sky is blue, the informed reader should still go outside to make sure that it is indeed blue.
